Argentina has its finger stuck between Paraguay and Brazil. Yes, really! Look on the map… there’s long, narrow, finger-like, sticky-up bit in the far north-east of Argentina: Misiones province. We crossed into Argentina from Paraguay at the bottom of the finger...

Terwijl wij de laatste voorbereidingen treffen, schuift onze gastvrouw de toegangspoort open. Helm op, handschoenen aan, zonnebril erbij, we zijn klaar voor vertrek. We starten de motoren, zwaaien gedag en mengen ons in het drukke verkeer van Santa Cruz de la Sierra....
